Chelsea visit Real Madrid tomorrow night in the first-leg of their Champions League semi-final tie, and unfortunately for the Blues, a familiar face is looking razor sharp.

In Real Madrid, they arguably have the most preferable semi-final opponent of the possible three, with both Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City both looking obsessed with winning their first ever Champions League trophy.
However, Real Madrid do possess a huge amount of quality, particularly in the attacking areas, with one of those players being Chelsea legend Eden Hazard, who was previously a doubt to feature in this contest.
